SKU: LEU9205

This is a set of seven Ecu's that was originally issued by the International Currency Bureau to show what the new European Ecus were going to look like. Unfortunately, they decided to call the new coins Euros and not Ecus, but this set is still a very important part of our numismatic heritage.

Each set comes in a full colour presentation folder with seven different denominations. There is the full crown sized 5 Ecu plus the 1/10, 1/4 and 1/2 Ecu, plus the 1, 2, 5 and 10 Ecus as well. The presentation of this set is outstanding and it is something which you will be proud to have in your collection as well as giving them as gifts.

These are the coins that never were...

England 25 Ecu

In 1992 everyone thought that the new European currency would be called the Ecu. Of course, they were wrong, it ended up being called Euro. Some privately issued patterns were struck, they are crownsized and contain the nominal value of 25 Ecus. You have St. George slaying the dragon on one side and Neptune and Europa on either side of a globe of the world with England below. The examples we have are those struck in brass, which is the scarcest metal they were struck in. These are full crownsized and Prooflike condition, you can add one to your collection for just a very reasonable price and remember that this metal is the scarcest of the lot.
